Why Local Businesses Need to Pay Attention to 'Business Attributes'

Attributes consist of descriptive content such as the services a business provides, payment methods accepted or the availability of free parking — details that may not apply to all businesses. Attributes are important because they can influence someone’s decision to visit you.

One of the best tips in this article is to manage your closed locations and we would expand upon this to include duplicate locations. Many people don’t do this step, and that’s a mistake. In fact, it’s one of the biggest mistakes a brand can make when managing local listings. If you don’t manage your closed locations, these ghost locations can haunt the search ecosystem and damage the data quality for your account by competing with nearby locations that are still alive and well.
